    I know how to pronounce it, I just didn't know if it was technically considered a consonant or vowel by the Germans.

    is the greek letter for b (as in alpha, beta, gamma, delta etc.) making it greek, therefore neither a vowel nor a consonant.

    The beta looks a bit different, this is an , the letter you get when you press the key next to zero on the keyboard. I guess it's an underline on american keyboards

    is a sharp form of s, called "s-z", or ess-zett. It's a consonant. Recent reforms in German spelling ( 2000 ) have almost removed it. There are rare occasions in which it is still used. As there are many occasions for modern people where we cannot use our own special signs, or cannot use them easily, each has an official substitute:

    = ae
    = oe
    = ue
    = ss ( note it's double s, not sz )

    On most new devices, those special signs are implemented, but who wants to press Alt-Special-Ctrl-x & 7 when one can just type a & e
    hth
    -nv

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    On my box, the symbol shows up as a small block (this is undoubtedly due to my use of UTF-8). Instead of "The artist formerly known as Brian", may I call you "Block Head"?

    I'm not sure... That's why I was wondering if it was a consonant or vowel... I think that ober's suggestion's a good one, though...
